At the Meltdown concert -
Thanks! Share it with your friends!
Richard Thompson is the most jealous man on earth
Gilmours’ voice is a perfect match for “Dimming of the Day”.
Continuing on a theme
A lullaby for my baby tonight!
If I let it, thsi song could easily make me cry.
gracias gordo querido
if someone has a copy of tony crabtree singing this……………. mind
My biggest musical inspiration.
we call him “El Gordo”, and El Gordo made a magnificent rendition of this
beautifully written song by the genious Richard Thompson.
Who is the guy to Uncle Dave’s left who plays guitar and sings harmony? He
is talented also.
@CSavageSr I mean this song…sorry
much as I like dave gilmour, this isn’t a patch on the Bonnie Raitt or
Alison Krauss versions!
this is what happens when you take a great song and mix it with legendary
guitar player/singer. you get perfection!!!!
Well yer can say what yer want….I think this is a lovely version of
Dimming of the Day..Good choice Mr Gilmour and beautifully sung…
So many stupid people on youtube It amazes me ↓
Yeah right – ‘cos David Gilmour can’t think of anything else to play!!!
I dont know why this song makes you all feel like you do, after all, it is
Dave Gilmour, What else would you expect from a genius?
Linda Thompson was the only one that I have heard sing this song until now.
He is good and I like his version, but I love Linda Thompson one better….
simply brilliant!!!……true music…..
i love this person like my grendfa :))) he is the most influence guitar
player and singer :)) respect !!!
LOVE & LIGHT FROM SUNNY FLORIANOPOLIS, BRAZIL!!!
A whole year of comments, and not one mention of Linda Thompson? Check out
her version with RT if you want a good cry. Each to his own, but I think
they provide better guitar, better vocals, just….better. ( The rest of
the album has some great stuff on it too)
I didn’t get that at all!! I was crying Buckets listening to this
song–Nothing Cheerful about it, to me :o( Made me Wish I had Someone who
Loved me like this, or even I had Loved Someone like this–Very
Not-Cheerful — But So Beautiful <3 <3 <3
I love you, David!!!
The irony is that he is an atheist.
In all honesty, what does this man play that is’nt great.?
An all time great song. Great cover . Alison Krause’s version on her new
album is really good as well. Gotta love Gilmour!
10 people have no souls.
Yes it is a Taylor!
just curious, why do you call him Uncle?? :o)
Wow this is beautiful… cant even describe it in words
A lesson in how to make a song your own,thank you David and shine on.
Bonnie Raitt does a good one also, this is great.
big big big huge fan of david gilmour but this is not up to his usual high
Richard Thompson would be proud.
I listen to this once a week! Its beautiful
Dave is the best Uncle I have ever known.
Pretty arangement, but he makes it sound like a cheerful song, which it
isn’t. So on that point he fails to convey the song.
I mean no disrespect. He is just older now. Older than many in the
business. They probaly look up to him like I do/did to my Uncles. Believe
me, I think David is brilliant!!!
Hear hear !
what a beautiful song… really, i honestly cant stop. its more of an
obssesion than a passion now.
I think the firwt time i heard this song was in 80-something when the local
PBS aired a folk song fund raiser, Arlo Guthrie introduced some gravel-ty
voiced big guy who sang this song. they repeated the program so I heard it
a few times, it always made me cry. never knew about Richard Thompson til
about ten years later when as a guard I listened to “Beeswings” on a
college station in the guard shack. Later i bought the 1st album qnd was
hooked – o his folk music! not the rock.
My god, this is great.
